We were very pleased with our stay at hotel rio malecon. From arriving at the hotel and leaving we received very accommodating and helpful staff. We had originally booked 2 nights in the standard room but were upgraded to the superior room that was simple but very clean, with air conditioning, free wifi and perfect for the two of us.... More

I was super stoked to stay here because it had awesome reviews. But it didn't end up being that great. It was clean (except for numerous dead bugs in the bathroom), and had air conditioning which was really nice. Maids were friendly, and the pool & lounge area outside was pleasant. Location of hotel was also great. The men working... More

I just don't have enough words to describe the over the top service received by all the staff at Rio Malecon. I recently stayed here with my children and it was just the best place I could have stayed at, it is very close to the ocean, transportation, food and to all kinds of shopping and tourist areas. The room... More

I will start by saying that I am not the type to leave reviews of any of the places (Hotels/Places) that we visit yearly...that is just the way I roll!

The location is excelent, walking distance from almost anything in the center and also a couple of blocks from where you take the buses to anywhere south of Puerto Vallarta of up north to Riviera Nayarit. The staff was good and helpful and the bedroom very confortable. I definetely recommend.... More

Dear Ms. Violeta Navarro, I am very sorry to have to be rude but, I will have to clarify in this forum that your claims are false. If you book a room for 2 adults and you show up with 3 adults you are going to be charged an extra person anywhere in the world independently of your nationality. Yes... More

My only major complaint is that the pool closes early at 9pm and that there was no jacuzzi. The downstairs restaurant has tables set-up around the pool so you have to keep the noise level down and aren't really able to swim since you run the risk of accidentally splashing the diners. I saw rambuctious kids in the pool and... More
